2 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO This module is part of a set of power points that describes how works the EX- ACT tool. EX-ACT (Ex-Ante Carbon-balance tool) is a tool developed by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). It is aimed at providing estimations of the mitigation impact of agriculture and forestry development projects, estimating net carbon balance from Green House Gas (GHG) emissions and carbon sequestration. It is a land based accounting system associated with the adoption of alternative land management options (See the linked flyer of the EX-ACT tool). The tool is developed with a modular approach, each module going to be described in such a power point. Acknowledgement

3 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO After reading this module, you should: understand how the non forest land use change module of EX-ACT works; know which data are required to run the non forest land use change module; be able to fill in the non forest land use change module by yourself. Objectives

4 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Main view of EX-ACT User needs to click here

5 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Complete view of the Land Use Change module

6 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO How filling it Simplest approach by default (Tier-1) Approach with more detailed information (Tier-2) 2 possible approaches:

7 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO How filling it... All other information corresponds to default values… …or intermediary calculations Simplest approach by default (Tier-1) Approach with more detailed information (Tier-2) User will have few information to fill in...

8 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Explanations step by step... 1

9 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Step by step...1/4 Definition of the land use changes Here are the names that will be used after for each land use change system First the user enters a name for the land use system

10 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Step by step...1/4 Definition of the land use changes User chooses among a list of initial and final possible land use

11 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Step by step...1/4 Definition of the land use changes Place for some comments

12 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Explanations step by step... 2

13 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Step by step...2/4 Default values are given concerning the carbon stocks (biomass and soil) for each category involved. Coefficients depend on the climatic zones (see description module) Corresponding coefficients

14 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Explanations step by step... 3

15 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Step by step... 3/4 Name of the previous defined land systems Land involved

16 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Step by step... 3/4 The user enters here the surface concerned by the land use change, with and without the project Land involved

17 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Step by step... 3/4 In the tier 2 approach, the user can change the dynamic rate of adopting changes (choice between linear/immediate/exponential) Land involved

18 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Explanations step by step... 4

19 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Step by step... 4/4 This table reports all the coefficients and calculations made by the model Balance of the with and without situation for the land use change module Corresponding GHG emissions/sequestration

20 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO How filling it...Now you know everything about the land use change module... …See the other modules!

21 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Glossary On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Global warming potential (GWP) is a measure of how much a given mass of greenhouse gas is estimated to contribute to global warming. It is a relative scale which compares the gas in question to that of the same mass of carbon dioxide (whose GWP is by definition 1) Emission factor: normalized coefficient that allows for calculating the emission fluxes of GHG Carbon sink: system that absorb naturally a part of the CO 2 emitted in the atmosphere and store carbon during a more or less long term Carbon balance: should be considered, for a specific project (or scenario of action) in comparison with a reference, as the net balance of all GHG emissions expressed in CO 2 equivalent (sources and sinks) with the atmosphere interface and the net change in C stocks (biomass, soil…).
